what are the contingencies in regards to using the power button icon? i am making a t-shirt and i used the apple symbols font and found the icon through there. am i allowed to use it for my t-shirt graphic? or do i need to have rights to it?

A t-shirt to commemorate the demise of the mini? :-(

Unless Apple claims some kind of trademark over the symbol you should be good (in my non-lawyerly opinion). There are other symbols in system fonts that may be more problematic (eg., the Apple logo) but this one seems safe.

Cheers, Si

The power button symbol is actually an IEC standard (it's used by more then just Apple) and therefore should be safe. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_symbol
